    Is 'slam'/'macrodynamics'/'impact' a real thing? (Outside of frequency response)

    I don't find 80% of what he says to be real. He represents everything that is wrong with music enjoyment.

    Meze EMPYREAN - the First Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone

    Most hilarious comment I've read in a while. In the age of peak shilling, hype, snake oil like audio has never seen before, lol. In a time when headphones is being invaded by the boutique speaker brands and pricing them similarly with the same nonsense marketing. Never have headphones become...

    Holy Grail of Hi-Fi

    Headphones that don't hurt, and just flat. R70x have fulfilled both of those for me. I headphone I can wear and listen for hours, neither my ears or head/neck get fatigued. And I never have to worry about some dumbass harmon tuning, V shape, forward sounding etc. I never think about...

    Lately headphone reviews are pissing me off

    No I'm not talking about people who are gushing with enthusiasm with their firs foray into headphones. Talking about established audio reviewers who have been doing it for years. I was never a fan of Tyll and Innerfidelity because he alway talked in a way that was hiding he has preferences...

    Lately headphone reviews are pissing me off

    Headphones come in variety of shapes and for various purposes and used for different reasons. Was on a mission to find sub $700 closed headphones. I started looking at Elegia. I see moron reviewers on google searches and youtube all making comparisons to the Clear, HD650 and other open back...

    Headphones for EDM in 2020?

    My current favorite are R70x for vocal and uplifting trance. For hard bass or armin rave style, A900z only cause I don't want the world to hear me, cause I gotta crank that volume.

    Audio-Technica ATH-R70x - In-Depth Review & Impressions

    It's impossible for me to put it into words, for my listening desires, this headphone isn't just the best I've ever heard, it's the best by huge margin. Everything is just perfect for me, I can listen to these all day, no sibilance at all for me yet the treble is still where I want them to be...

    The AKG K550 Impressions and Discussion Thread!

    I would do is cut the cable so only about an inch is left outside of the cup and solder a 3.5mm female jack to it. Make it easy on yourself. Also I don't care about attached cables, dunno why people make a big deal of it. Among my headphones with detachable, I never detach the cable... so...

    Audio-Technica ATH-R70x - In-Depth Review & Impressions

    Just another BS term that has no real meaning since it varies from person to person, it's BS, just like grain or any other idiotic term audiophools come up with. Why is it a BS? Cause if the headphones aren't revealing per it's actual definition, then it's dogsh**... so it's a idiotic BS term...

    ATH-A990Z vs. ? ? ?

    A990Z pads are fantastic. If you want an insane amount of bass, then go for it, but drowns out the sub-bass and mid-bass, becomes boomy. I'd stick to the stock pads. If don't like the sound, just return the headphones and try something else. No

    Most overrated headphone brands

    Why do people keep referencing this? It's getting so old. What amazes me most, the presentation and paper is old. And yet it seems to be thing for so many to keep referring to. I don't get it. Also no idea how anyone realistically can do this without EQ, considering his curve is elevations...

    Most overrated headphone brands

    Amusing cause they are docs and by their profession would know anatomy and the limitations of human hearing and how susceptible human hearing is to be influenced by outside factors such as price tag and ridiculous reviews. But then, I guess what else do they have to spend their money on? I dunno.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Sennheiser uses the worst pads on mid-tier headphones. Those pads flatten like pancakes in such short amount of time. And the degradation of the pads do affect the sound. I dunno why they don't use materials that are more durable and retain their shape and quality. Who knows, but then when...

    https://www.neumann.com/homestudio/en/difference-between-home-stereo-speakers-and-studio-monitors That's the entire point of reference monitors, hearing details, they aren't meant to be lively, in fact the opposite. If you want lively mids then keep looking. There isn't any reason to aspire...

    Audio-Technica ATH-R70x - In-Depth Review & Impressions

    Weird, you must have watched a different video cause Lachlan says he likes both K712 and R70x because they are different. But then I think it's odd you're already negative on R70x because you don't like K712 because Lachlan likes K712. His favorite headphones were also the MA900 which by...

    Audio-Technica ATH-R70x - In-Depth Review & Impressions

    So one of the interesting software I use on the desktop occasionally is Sonarworks 4. Headphones like my K712 or A990z which are clearly colored with their wonderful flavor of sound, sound very different with Sonarworks applied. Headphones that are more balanced like HD58x do not sound fairly...

    I don't have tube or the 600s. But I have HD58x and tragically my HD650s were sent to the landfill, ex thought the 650 case was empty... IMO Senn house sound isn't for everybody. They definitely have that veil I comparison to other headphones and narrowest soundstage of any open headphones...

    Listening on my OP 6T phone via the dongle (not a dongle dac / amp, passive). I am at about 40% volume, surprised by that.

    Audio-Technica ATH-R70x - In-Depth Review & Impressions

    Arrived. They are smaller than I expected, also lighter than I expected. By ears do fit in them, so they are not on-ear. The sound is good so far, going to use these exclusively for a week. But sound very clear, almost want a 2nd pair now for the bedroom and the desktop, and just sell the...

    Audio-Technica ATH-R70x - In-Depth Review & Impressions

    As prior post, I think head-fi has changed a lot. In the past yes there were some snobs, but the snobs usually kept to themselves or eventually migrated to forum like Head Case. There were a lot more honest reviews in the past I think, reviews more centered on moods, music, and just more why...

    Audio-Technica ATH-R70x - In-Depth Review & Impressions

    I been reading lot more reviews from professionals as well. One of the things I like they never spew any of the headphile garbage like treble sounds grainy and prattling on about how they can hear peaks precisely in the 10K region as if they aren't just staring at some graph, and experts on...
